"Tour Budget 2011" is designed and targeted specifically towards the entertainment industry. Whether you're a local, regional, or professional entertainment group - THIS IS FOR YOU!
Any one from amateur to professional can use this workbook - even if you've never kept track of a tour's finances before. This is a wonderfully simple way of organizing a tour's finances while on the road!
Simply enter the calendar info for the city, state or country, venue, and day-type in the Tour Dates tab. There's even a chart there to tally how many of each day-type there are.
The Salaries, Per-Diems paid, and Meals (buyouts) paid tabs automatically send their totals to the Daily Budget. Totals from the Flights tab get added to the Misc.
tab. The Misc. tab accounts for all the miscellaneous things such as fuel, tolls, bus and truck leases, etc. Per-Diem amounts or attendances are sent to the M&IE tab for taxes (Meals & Incidental Expenses).
All that's required here is to enter that city's federal CONUS rate, where a link is already provided. There is also an Astral Projection Budget, which is identical to the Daily Budget excepting that no figures are automatically transferred there - you can enter your own projections.
